Arian Foster limited in Wednesday practice, but fantasy value unaffected

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Texans star back had limited reps in practice, but is he in any danger? We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was limited in Wednesday practice with a knee issue, but it's not expected to cost him any time. Playing just two nights ago, it would make sense that Houston wants to keep their star running back healthy especially with Ben Tate out. The Texans have dealt with a myriad of significant injuries over the last year and a half, recently losing Brian Cushing for the season, and they don't want to see that happen with any more stars. Foster is second in the NFL with 532 yards and leads the NFL with 132 carries.

Fantasy Take: Nothing to worry about here and a great matchup against the Packers this week. Green Bay has been susceptible to the run and just gave up 119 rushing yards to the Colts. Expect Foster to easily top 100 yards. He is coming off of a 152 yard, 1 TD game against the Jets.
